It's hotter than a match head here for us Washingtonian's who have NO AC and rarely break the 80's! Just visited son Andrew in the Backhouse,,,,,87 inside the house!
Times like this make me wish the old PC would DIE and I could buy a laptop- substantially more portable, but I refuse to buy ANY new appliance till the old one(s) die, because we DO live in a Country of Waste/dispose of, cast off! But today, some of the cast off's of others became my treasures!
My first fun find was this Bird Cage and Stand! $4 Bucks for the kit and kaboodle!
I KNOW,,,Shut up! $4??? I'm going to hang some lobelia inside of it for now, on my sitting porch. Of course I went to Annies and bought a wire cloache' that I'm going to invert and plant that was $18 bucks,,okay, a modified bargain,,,,,but I'm loving it!
I found a bunch of vintage doillies at various stops -a Qtr Each~which kind of makes me sad,,,,LOOK at that Handwork,! Geeesh!
The white ones will get tea stained and used on some pillows I'm going to make for an upcoming show....
Fun Vintage hat,,,,,,photos not the best, sorry! Loved the brooche/button on the top.
This one won't get torn apart for a cake topper or other crafting, just thought it was CUTE!
I got an old Campfire Mint Box full of Postage stamps of various locations/dates for a Qtr! This is just a "sprinkle" of what is in there! Fun for crafting!
Tons of Vintage Pearl Strands on the Cheap!
Kinda liking those old Clip Earrings, they remind me of something Gloria Vanderbilt would have worn!
I may not exactly be petite, but at least my EARS are smaller than hers!
Vintage (?) Ceramic Liquer Bottle and an old marmalade Jar,,,,,,$1 each And, at this point, I'm really "Schmitzen!" Shew! Should have grabbed a lemonade about 5 houses ago!
I got this cute little container of Chicken and Hens from a Senior couple that were "set" up in their yard next door to another sale I stopped at,,,,,they were SO Cute,,,,well, the couple AND the Chicken and hens! $.25 cents!
And YUMMY! Raspberries at another stop just picked this morning...$1-Can't get THAT at the grocery store! They are heavenly!
And my last little find was another Bird Cage I picked up for $3.
Not sure WHAT I'm going to do with this one yet,,but it's in great shape and I love the color!
So,,,Okay, I've lived in Snohomish for going on 3 Decades, but I explored places today in Snohomish that I didn't even know existed! To give you an idea,,,,Snohomish has the largest School District and School Bus Service in the State of Washington. Our little Historic Downtown area and even the other parts of the City Limits are pretty small,,,,,,,But our ZIP Code? The overall area that encompasses "Greater" unincorporated Snohomish is HUGE!!! I think I logged close to 100 miles today,,no joke, and IF I left Snohomish at all, it was only briefly to touch on the outskirts of Monroe! Fun to find all the "knooks and "Crannies."
But it is STILL hotter than Hades and I hope it cools down before working this weekend in Joyworks! Ackkk-Makeup? Okay honestly,,,,,BRA? Oh my Stars!
(Andy's BFF Erick is headed to the Back Cottage soon and bringing his Beagle, Latte'- who will inevitibly end up HERE with my two Hounds! Or Lord, let the Canine Games Begin! )
Have a GREAT weekend! Hope you stay Cool!
